9781432712167: The Unified Cycle Theory: How Cycles Dominate the Structure of the Universe and Influence Life on Earth

Documented cycles range widely in diversity. They include fluctuations in the stock market, commodity prices, economic activity, wars, civilizations, global climate, ice-ages, geological formations, and abundance of life on Earth. This book examines all of these cycles, plus more. In addition, the Unified Cycle Theory makes predictions about our universe. If you're interested in history, science, geology, physics, astronomy, climatology, biology, mathematics, psychology, sociology, philosophy, economics, or investment theory, then read on. The theory includes portions of all of these academics. Furthermore, this book covers cycles ranging as short as 27 days to ones spanning billions of years. The evidence comes from a variety of scientific, academic, and business sources - which this book methodically details. In spite of the great advances in identifying cycles, this increased knowledge yielded little in the way of providing a consensus about why they occur. This book attempts to correct that shortcoming. These chapters step back, dispose all preconceptions, reexamine the wealth of information available, and use deductive processes to formulate a new theory.

From the Author:

Without a doubt, The Unified Cycle Theory publication emerges as the most authoritative book ever written about cycles. The author gathered hundreds of data series' from a variety of academic areas. The areas include star formation rates, various geological data, global temperatures (from geology, ocean sediments, and ice cores), evolutionary data, extinction data, civilization chronologies, commodity prices, stock market prices, and economic data.

The book then shows how all of these seemingly unrelated areas actually link themselves quite closely to one or more of the following four primary classifications of cycles:

1) Milankovitch Cycles - Gravitational cycles related to eccentricity, obliquity, and precession.
2) Solar Cycles - Magnetic cycles primarily consisting of frequencies of 27 days, 11 years (Schwabe cycle), 88 years (Gleissberg cycle), and 208 years (Suess cycle).
3) Geomagnetic Cycles - Primarily modulated by solar cycles; however, a semi-annual cycle, a cycle related to eclipses, and a lunar cycle also play minor roles in geomagnetic oscillations.
4) A 4th set of mysterious cycles, linked precisely by a factor of 3, dominate all areas of the universe. These cycles affect Earth and the universe throughout all timescales.

The author calls this mysterious 4th set of cycles the Extra-Universal Wave Series (EUWS). These cycles correlate with oscillations already identified by researchers in most of the major sciences. While these other researchers have done an excellent job at indentifying individual oscillations and frequencies related to their own special investigations, the book steps back to look at the big picture - across all sciences and across all timescales. In doing so, it becomes apparent that these mysterious cycles link themselves by a factor of three.

It's incredibly hard to believe that all of these naturally occurring cycles could happen by chance in such a precise manner. The book identifies and discusses 25 EUWS cycles ranging from 28.7 days to 22.2 billion years. In the Unified Cycle Theory, it's fascinating to read and learn about these 25 harmonic cycles - with all 25 conforming to three rules strictly and precisely:

1) Each parent cycle determines the characteristics of its child cycle.
2) To calculate the frequency of a child cycle, simply divide the frequency of its parent cycle by 3.
3) Each child cycle inherits cyclical turning points (peaks and troughs) from its parent - with 3 child cycles squeezed in between theoretical peaks of each parent cycle.

The book reveals many important implications about the EUWS cycles. It appears that University of Chicago extinction-cycle pioneers Raup & Sepkoski were close to being correct when they wrote the following passage back in 1984 in their groundbreaking publication, Periodicity of Extinctions in the Geologic Past - by realizing the difference between Earth's environmental symptoms and the true origin of the extinction cycles:

"If periodicity of extinctions in the geologic past can be demonstrated, the implications are broad and fundamental. A first question is whether we are seeing the effects of a purely biological phenomenon or whether periodic extinction results from recurrent events or cycles in the physical environment. If the forcing agent is in the physical environment, does this reflect an earthbound process or something in space? If the latter, are the extraterrestrial influences solar, solar system, or galactic? Although none of these alternatives can be ruled out now, we favor extraterrestrial causes for the reason that purely biological or earthbound physical cycles seem incredible, where the cycles are of fixed length and measured on a time scale of tens of millions of years. By contrast, astronomical and astrophysical cycles of this order are plausible even though candidates for the particular cycle observed in the extinction data are few."

Now, 25 years later, with strong evidence of a harmonic sequence of 25-linked cycles regulating not only extinctions, but a number of other universal events, additional deductions can be made:

a) Because of their harmonic link, reason dictates that these cycles must all share a common source. This fact alone discredits all existing theories regarding their origin. For example, a minority of researchers believe a subset of these cycles propagate from galactic cosmic rays (GCRs). Up until about two years ago, the author believed the same. However, these cycles were in existence before the Milky Way formed, so GCRs cannot possibly act as their source.

b) Because of the size of 22.2-gyr cycle, unless the Big Bang touched off this set of cycles (and it seems unlikely that an explosion could modulate itself), these cycles almost certainly originate from outside our known universe.

c) If that's the case, for these cycles to appear uniformly throughout our universe, these cycles must propagate at super-fast speeds - much faster than the speed of light.

d) These cycles appear to constantly create expansions (coinciding with rising temperatures) and contractions (related to declining temperatures) throughout our universe. During contractions, matter tends to clump together more than normal (hence, instead of gases being uniformly dispersed throughout our universe, we see the "clumpiness of matter" effect). These cyclic contractions and expansions act as the triggers that cause moons, planets, stars, galaxies, galaxy clusters, and universes to form (big crunch - big bang cycles).

e) These cycles may somehow be related to fluctuations in gravity - creating the illusions of dark matter and dark energy. (Dark matter and dark energy may really be the same thing, creating different distortions in unison with phases of these cycles.)

f) The long-term cycles suggest that our universe resides inside a much large multiverse. Our universe is simply one of many universes. A big crunch may act as a large-scale version of a supernova implosion - while also sharing some properties of a massive black hole. As a big crunch approaches singularity (probably without actually achieving singularity) near the time of a long-term cyclical trough, a big crunch reverses into a big bang.

g) These cycles also affect mankind in many ways - including modulating cycles in civilizations, economic activity, and stock market activity.

The discovery of the EUWS cycles suggests that we need to drastically rethink many basic assumptions in all of our sciences.

If you're interested in economics, sociology, psychology, markets, biology, climatology, geology, and/or astrophysics, the Unified Cycle Theory is a must-read. The 496-page publication details the properties of all four categories of cycles - including the 25 EUWS cycles.
